Our story begins in 1936 when Arthur Smith (1893-1975) purchased the parcel of land which would later become Serenity Vineyards. At this time it was known as the Art Smith Farm.

In 1976 Don Smith (1924-1981) retired from the construction industry and purchased the farm, where he was raised, from his parents Arthur and Agnes Smith. He worked hard and established the first fields in the Vineyard in 1977. 

In 1981 the property was passed on to his family and we have carefully nurtured the vines, added new popular varieties and have supplied many wineries in the eastern states with fine grapes and wine. During this time the business was expanded and managed by Jeffrey Arthur Smith (1949-2014) 

In 2006 Serenity Vineyards created our first vintage and made the leap forward to selling our own, 100% estate grown wine. Now it is our pleasure to present our own Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Mirth for your enjoyment.


We are located on the west shore of Seneca Lake on Route 14 and Davy Road about nine miles south of Geneva and two miles north of Dresden. Just look for  our sign near Travis Road, turn towards the lake and make a left at our sign to our Tasting Room and while you are enjoying our wine, take in the actual winemaking facility at Serenity.

Our phone number is (315)536-6701 . We hope you enjoy our wine and become a familiar face at Serenity Vineyards.
